I just loved the *Sweet* ATC made by Jen70 so I made a few for altoid tin toppers. Then, I took her inspiration one step further and embellished a lunch tin around it! The hardest part of a lunch tin (for me) is the top. I have the hardest time, even with a template, getting the paper to fit around the handles right. A lot of the time I just paint the doggone thing instead. Depends on how much patience I have that day!
I just love pink and girly stuff! Thanks for the inspiration, Jen70!

Great job on the tin! One suggestion I have for doing the tops is to get a template from the Card Ladies. Website is http://www.thecardladies.com They are made from acrylic and sure do make it easy. I use the template to trace on the paper, cut out on my lines, then usually, it's one minor adjustment and I'm done!
